Greetings! I'm a 29 year old happily married lady who is on a weight-loss journey with my husband.

Update: January 4, 2014
New Year. Fresh Start. I thought about starting a brand-new page, but there was so much history for me on this one - so here I am! I am at my heaviest weight and looking to lose 100 pounds, preferably before my 30th birthday in November. However, I've sent a realistic, achievable goal of losing at least 5 pounds a month. Let's go!

Update: August 14, 2013
Restarting. Again. No need to every give up on my dream of a healthy lifestyle, I just know that this time is THE time. I turn 30 next year (exactly 448 days from today) and I want my life to be in the best place possible by then.

Update: December 14, 2012
"Well, I'm at a place I didn't want to be again...the beginning." Sounds about right, nearly one year later. I recently turned 28, have had a few health issues and just want to finally be at peace with myself. It's an internal, daily battle and it's time to figure out how to live a happy, healthy lifestyle.

Update: December 29, 2011
Well, I'm a place I didn't want to be again...the beginning. A quote from my friend, "If you don't like re-starting, then don't stop." That's my goal this time.

Update: October 10, 2011
Well, I gained a little bit of weight...ok, so I gained 30 pounds. In a few months. SO, as the book title goes in Sex and the City (Charlotte at the book store), I'm "starting over, yet again."

Update: January 25, 2011
Happy one-year sparkversary to me! In one year, I've given up soda, lost 41 pounds with Sparkpeople (47 pound total loss), write a weight loss blog on the That's fit website (http://www.thatsfit.com/bloggers/ashley-w
isniewski/) and actually enjoy running three times a week! What a difference a year makes :) Still working on 53 more pounds to lose, but I'll get there!

Update: May 6, 2010
